Fear 0f Reality vs. Illusion

Image result for Frozen with fear,

In the movie “The Longest Ride” Ira explains that love requires sacrifice and it’s true in any successful marriage or relationship. It also could be applied to our country. We have soldiers, sailors and airmen who love our country so much, that they lay down their lives for it. The same goes for police, fire and other first responders.  AS many overpriced and immature NFL Football Players display their ignorance along the side lines in disrespect  of our National Anthem  🙁

We also have ordinary people doing things to show love for our country and for each other in the way they take care of our sick and our poor.  They show their love by feeding, clothing, sheltering and taking care of people too sick to care for themselves .

Love should also require the sacrifice of all our politicians and extreme partisans who  need to understand that getting their own way on everything is not showing love for our country.  It is selfish and self centered as well as it does not respect the dignity and rights of all people to be loved and accepted for who they are and not what others want them to be .

It is not love when people blame all the ills of the world on one party or group instead of seeing that all parties share the responsibility for things that are wrong and equally share responsibility to work together and find solutions.  Hate,  bitterness  and division are not love and they do not solve problems, but only serve to create new ones. There is a saying “Be the change you want to see in the world “.

It is a complete waste of energy to spend time hating others or allowing media or politicians to stoke anger against each other to further an agenda that only serves those who sow those seeds. Both parties are guilty of doing it and anyone who isn’t willing to admit that is not being honest with themselves .

Our Government provokes Fear. A major contributor to why we never reach our true potential (lack of self-esteem being another).

Fear leaves you frozen in your footsteps and stops you from making moves that were once a part of your gameplan. I’m here to say don’t let fear leave you regretting missed opportunities and also has you feeling like you didn’t chase your dreams.

.

Fear is so dangerous to live with, life is scary I’m sure you guys know that, but you have to take life by the horns and not let it beat you.  More importantly don’t let fear influence your decisions (unless it’s something like try to fist fight a lion, then in     that case fear take over and don’t freakin’ do it). Lastly don’t create fears that shouldn’t exist. The majority of fears that we harbor have been created by our minds. The mind is     a dangerous place we take things we’ve seen or heard from others and create fear.     We’re stopping ourselves!

So I challenge you guys today, whatever fears you have go against them. Something I’ve heard a couple times is that when you get past your fears that’s where life begins. You can take your fears and stomp them into the ground or be locked in the prison that is fear and be haunted by regrets. The choice is yours fam. Let’s conquer fear and LIVE!

According to Hinduism , the existential problem at the heart of the human condition is the ignorance of the true nature of reality. This is not to say the world itself is illusionary, only that are understanding of it is. A Hindu parable puts it this way: imagine you wake in the middle of the night to find a poisonous snakes curled at the foot end of your bed. Frozen with fear, you spend the night in terror; praying the snake won’t strike and in doing so kills you.

   AS dawn rises and the sunlight floods your bedroom you realize that the snake, is indeed, the belt you neglected to hang up the night before. Immediately your fear and terror vanishes as you achieve liberation from the illusion of the snake and the fear and terror that the illusion that the terror provoked in you.
  Indeed transcendent experiences like these and insight are always uncomfortable, both in what thy are and in what they imply. Thereby, any effort at knowing, healing or leading that really concerns the person must start with those experiences that affect the human being on the deepest level and allow that to ring out of them.
   Every human being embodies the absolute living within their own spirit, realizing that they have become what they are through the experiences that they have lived. WE all exist limited by the here and now set of circumstances that test are true nature. From childhood on, these circumstance and other people suppresses our true nature.
   Externally, human life is a constant battle between your inner self and outer existence.  WE are all driven by an urge toward the life form embedded in our inner nature. Merely surviving is not enough, we all want to live ourselves out and fulfill ourselves as a definite somebody. It exist in everyone of us, and demonstrates its reality in its uncompromising insistence on being realized and witnessed to in a specific outer form under all circumstances.
   Your outer form is not something we are given, but something we are given to realize.
 .
Its only when we understand what we do and why we do it
we succeed at what we do!!!
 .
It is only by cooperating consciously in the process that we can realize it, and achieve transparency.
SO What do we mean when we speak of a human being’s outer form. What we mean is his or her inner form’s way of being there in the world . This involves both the inner and outer –man or woman — not just the physical body and visible self. But the hole person as the living total of the gestures in which he or she experiences, lives out and embodies in themselves.
  Objective consciousness stresses the visible and tangible “surface appearance” of a human being and so lures us into the static way of seeing. The static way of seeing individuals usually extends beyond the ay the look and includes their true nature.  A person’s true nature and inner form are part of their complete reality. Circumstances and self-assertive instincts can make us “conform” and take on form that are not really ours and contradict true nature’s law.
  Whenever these forms become ingrained, they provoke both mental and physical disorders, for they have somewhere brought the
“wheel of change” to a halt and prevented us from maturing in accordance with our true nature. Whenever they take firm and final hold , these substitute solutions that lead to permanent disorders that we call neuroses.
  To the extent that neurosis results from clinging to existential forms, we are all neurotic. Our actually becoming ill depends on how far true nature’s shaping energy is blocked. This is where the difference between slight and severe neurosis lies. The things that come to light when deep seated neurosis is healed (and often makes neurosis the first step in the great process of changing and maturing.) Tells us about the life form intended for them and provides true everlasting healing.
 .

  Typically people are bodily “right” when they engage the world without tensing.

And accept the world for what it is… why you may ask?

   Because they are transparent to their own true nature. In others they are open to perceive it and capable of witnessing to it calmly, cheerfully and kindly in the world, regardless of circumstances. The process of change that accords with true nature and brings healing affects the body as well.  Your voice becomes more resonant, complexion slightly darker,  the expression in your eyes fuller and deeper    and clearer, the movement of your body more in balanced and in rhythm. With your breathing more relaxed and posture becoming more permeable in which the whole person is correctly balanced.  – Karlfried Durckheim

Why and How to Let Go of Fear

Image result for bruce lipton

The simple step is to understand the basic patterns driving our evolution.

Scientists have known for a long time about the biological imperative, an inherent mechanism that engages the drive to survive. How it’s activated is unclear, but every organism, from a bacterium to the most advanced creature, can read the environment and sense whether its life is in threat or not. If it’s in threat, the system engages the imperative, which activates behaviors that will ensure survival. The immediate imperative for personal survival is to breathe air, drink water, and eat food—all the activities that support life.

When forces outside the body threaten life, the imperative will read the situation and engage life-sustaining behaviors. These functions are not only activated in the brain,       but are also experienced in the gut as a feeling that the situation is in some way life-threatening. I believe that’s what civilization is experiencing right now.

The biological imperative is directing people to discover how to become more secure,      and the fundamental resolution to that quest is to form community. It is important to understand that this drive to be in community is not just an expression of our biological imperative; it is also our evolutionary imperative. Our consciousness is driving us to assemble and survive through the creation and support of a global community.

The evolutionary imperative is simple to understand, and it can be profoundly liberating—a way to transcend fear. Let me explain:

Over 30 years ago, my research as a cell biologist revealed that the genes are not the key    to organismal evolution. Instead, the studies revealed that the cell membrane, the “skin”  of the cell, is the “brain” that controls behavior and gene activity. Protein switches in the membrane respond to environmental signals by translating the information and creating  a life-sustaining biological response.

The relevance of this insight is that these protein switches represent units of “perception,” and the number of perception units in the membrane is directly proportional to the amount of awareness expressed by an organism.

According to this understanding, the nature of “consciousness” can be directly correlated with the number of perception units that can be deployed within what we might call the cell “mem-brain.”

Now, this means there are physical limits to awareness. The first limit is that perceptual protein switches cannot be stacked up in the very thin cell membrane; they can only be distributed in the membrane as a monolayer.

Carrier Of Secrets Credit Andy Kehoe

Carrier of Secrets by Andy Kehoe

Picture an olive sandwich, where the olives represent perception.

Once the surface of the bread is covered with olives, you can’t stack more olives on top.   To add more olives, you need more surface area—a bigger slice of bread.  Evolution of consciousness is directly proportional to the number of protein   “olives”—therefore, evolution is focused on making a bigger slice of bread, increasing the surface area of the cell’s membrane.

Another physical limitation of awareness is reached when a cell maximizes its amount of membrane surface area. For example, the most primitive cells, bacteria, are surrounded by rigid “capsules” (the equivalent of the exoskeleton found in insects, clams, and lobsters). The physical limitation imposed by the exoskeleton limits the amount of membrane a bacterium can possess. Once the maximum amount of membrane was packed into the bacterial capsule, evolution hit a wall. You can’t make a “smarter” bacterium.

But evolution didn’t stop—it changed paradigms. Once you’ve made the smartest bacterium, the next level of evolution is to create a community of bacteria, wherein the bacteria can share their awareness. On the physical plane, bacteria can communicate    with one another through the use of secreted chemical signals (similar to hormones).

Bacteria can also communicate by releasing viruses that contain nucleic acids (DNA or RNA programs)—information that can be picked up and utilized by other members of the bacterial community. In addition, bacteria can communicate by broadcasting vibrational energy fields.

Over time, communities containing a variety of different bacterial species, each with specialized traits, learned to support each other’s lives.

These communities surrounded themselves with a membrane, taking control of the conditions in their shared environment (for example, salt balance, pH control, temperature control, and so forth). In understanding the relevance of community, consider that each bacterium has a membrane awareness of 1X consciousness, but a community of 100 bacteria would have 100X+ amount of consciousness. With greater consciousness, a community of bacteria has a better chance of survival than an individual free-living bacterium. These microbial communities are called bacterial films.

We see a human as a single living organism. In truth, a human is an integrated community of around 50 trillion amoebalike cells. 

With further development, the bacterial film communities became specialized and integrated, a development that led to a new organism, an amoeba. While the amoeba is recognized as a single cell, in truth it is a modified version of a bacterial community. For the next million or so years, the amoeba was able to continually expand its cell membrane surface area to an extent that an amoeba’s awareness is 1,000 times greater than that of a single bacterium.

Then, evolution stopped again because the amount of membrane an amoeba can contain also has a size limitation. The amoeba, which possesses an internal cytoskeleton, is somewhat like a water balloon: You can fill a balloon with a small amount of water and throw it around all day. But if you overfill the balloon, the pressure will cause the balloon to rupture. Similarly, if an amoeba’s membrane-bound mass of cytoplasm becomes too large, the membrane will rupture. The profound point is that an amoeba can only grow to a certain size—and no bigger. You can’t make a “smarter” amoeba.

But evolution didn’t stop here, either. When amoebas maximized their membrane surface area, they came together to form communities of amoebas to share awareness and advance evolution. All the visible plants and animals are actually integrated communities of amoebalike cells. For example, we see a human as a single living organism. In truth, a human is an integrated community of around 50 trillion amoebalike cells.

How the Human Brain Increases Awareness

Like the rigid capsule that limits the “mem-brain” of the bacterium, a mammalian brain is limited by the size of the skull. In more primitive mammals, such as a rat, the brain is a round and smooth vesicle filling         the cranium.

But in human evolution, expanding the human brain’s surface area resulted in folding the brain—the characteristic furrows and ridges.  The more folds     in the brain, the greater the surface area the skull can accommodate—and consequently, the more awareness it manifests.

Inevitably, the human brain could no longer enlarge because it completely filled the skull, and evolution hit another wall. But, of course, it didn’t stop. Once the smartest human was created, the next level of our evolution led humans to form communities to share awareness. First there were clans, then tribes, then states, and then nations as humans assembled into larger communities. When humans were in small, scattered tribes, their shared awareness led them to create simple technologies, such as spears and flint cutting stones.

When human groups grew into massive communities, their shared a wareness led to the creation of computers and rocket ships.

Right now, human civilization is on the verge of creating a new multi-human organism. What we experience as upheaval is leaving behind more primitive versions of human communities to create a new, more inclusive version where each human is a “cell” in the evolving superorganism, humanity.

Chance Meeting Forest Dragons Credit Andy Kehoe

Chance Meeting Forest Dragons by Andy Kehoe

This evolutionary jump is facilitated most recently by the development     of        a global human nervous system—the Internet, a nervous system that can connect 7–8 billion human “cells” into one giant community with shared awareness. The Millennial generation that grew up with the Internet is not a local community, but a global one. The old divisions between humans—not just borders and physical walls, but the psychosocial barriers like sexual orientation, religion, and race—are collapsing.

The next leap of human civilization will be the realization of the United States’ logo: E pluribus unum, “out of many, one.” We are all in this together; we are all cells in the body of an evolving humanity.

In fact, we are now living healthier, happier, more peaceable lives, and for    far longer than ever before in history. The level of violence in the world has rapidly decreased, and yet we are as frightened as ever—perhaps more frightened.

We are becoming more sensitive to our global “autoimmune” disease.          Our increasingly interconnected community is leading us to experience the anguish of every terrorist attack,  every death by famine,  every act of abuse. The deaths of a handful of people can now spark the worldwide outrage that once required thousands or even million of deaths. For our evolution to continue, this self-destruction must cease.

The Elephant in the Room

Five times in the history of Earth, life was thriving,  then some event—an asteroid crashing into the planet or a massive geologic upheaval—upended the environment and anywhere from 70 to 90 percent of all life forms died out. Today, human behavior has precipitated the sixth mass extinction, and we’re losing species faster than previous extinctions. One survey estimates that 62 percent of the animals that were on Earth in 1970 are already gone.

A recent international report predicts that by 2048—just 30 years from now—there will be no fish in the ocean because of human overfishing, destruction of the breeding grounds, and human-derived pollution of the seas. One NASA report predicts that industrial civilization will experience    an irreversible collapse within two to three decades. One way or another, change is happening.

Every citizen and every country is now a player in this process.

For example, thanks to improved technology and increasingly strict regulations, air pollution in California has steadily declined over the             last three decades.

But now it’s rising again because the air pollution of the developing  industrial nations of China and India is being delivered to California                by global airstreams. We are all aboard the same “spaceship.”

Environmental catastrophes in one country inevitably cross geographical barriers and borders. Such problems are global threats, affecting humans everywhere, and they require global solutions.

The fact that our civilization is on the verge of a massive breakdown is the impetus to build a global community on a new and sustainable foundation. This is our next evolutionary step, a participatory evolution wherein all of      us must work together to create a new, sustainable organism.

I’m not saying we’re going to make the evolutionary leap to survive. For example, most history books say that civilization started 5,000 years ago       in the Fertile Crescent between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Recently, however, the remains of an advanced civilization have been discovered at Göbekli Tepe in Turkey—a civilization that ended over 10,000 years ago.

But natural processes did not cover the city; it was manually buried with rocks and dirt. Who were these people, why did they leave, and where did they go? We don’t know. However, by dating the artifacts, scientists have established that they left after the onset of global climate change. When the city existed, the environment provided food to feed a large population. Today, the region is a desert. Apparently, climate change altered the environment to the extent that food was no longer available and the population had to move on. The difference is that we, in the 21st century, don’t have another place to go.

Once the smartest human was created, the next level of our evolution led humans to form communities to share awareness.

What to Do Now

Each of us is living in a field of energy—and each of us contributes to            that energy through our consciousness. Each human is like a tuning fork whose brain is vibrating at a specific frequency.

Therefore, a whole community can vibrate in harmony, as in a community sharing yoga. By definition, the collective community manifests an energy field that is powerful and palpable enough to support the individuals sharing that field. When you experience this energy, it has reassuring and calming effects that will make you want to stay in this field for your safety and security. And increasing the size of the field is clearly the evolutionary path toward a sustainable new humanity.

Fear and fighting and protest cannot build the field.

Lifes a roller coaster !

Image result for i do not like cancer here or there
Hi everyone I’m Allison Brighton the founder of the amazing group https://www.facebook.com/groups/GBMgrade4survivors/ 
and the wife of a 16 year survivor husband Bill Brighton
.
Allison Brighton's Profile Photo, Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, closeup
 We’ve been married almost 24 years. People keep asking for our story so here it goes. Bill and I met on June 19th 1993. Fell in love at first sight… we got married 5 months later and had our first son on June 19th,  one year from when we met.   Jacob was planned just for everyone info. Then February 16th 1997 our second son Austin was born, then on June 3rd 1999 our last son Tyler was born!!
.
Happy times we were soooo happy. We were done having children. 3 sons were enough.
We had them in t-ball, football, bowling, Disney drawing classes etc. anything that a boy could do. They were like 3 little munchkins. Couldn’t love them enough!
.
Well as the years past… in 2001. Billy says his eyes are starting to give him problems. and with me thinking …Huh, then go to optometrist. So he goes and they find nothing? Ok we both thought weird. Then two months later Bill says again his eyes are acting strange and he’s getting headaches at this point. So he goes back to optometrist and tells the doctor something is not right, so the doctor examines Billy again and says “hey there’s nothing wrong with your eyes. . . . so I recommend you get an MRI???
.
So our primary doctor ordered an emergency MRI. At this point Bill and I are starting to get worried, so we go get his MRI and then go home to wait for the results which would be days away.

Bam! The phone rings at like 7:30pm that night and it’s Bill’s doctor. The doctor continues to tell Bill that he has a tumor the size of a baseball. . . . . and needs to have it removed immediately.  Oh my word what were we hearing???  We both were in shock….no word to describe the feeling.

So a couple days later he’s in for a crainiotony with our family and friends with us at the hospital.

Now what I didn’t tell you was Billy’s Grandmother has brain tumors, but they were      never cancer so she continued to lead a pretty normal life. And we all assumed it was       the same thing as there grandma. Not cancer……

Well he was in surgery for hours I can’t even remember how long his surgery was. But when the surgeon comes out with a nurse at his side you know something’s not right.

Well the doctor starts telling us how Well Bill did in the surgery and how he’s resting        in ICU. Okay,  I thought but what about the tumor.

He continues to tell us Bill has a GBM Grade 4 malignant brain tumor. They had sent it out for a second opinion to San Francisco and confirms its a GBM) He continues to say that he thought Bill has about 6 months to live.  As I fell on the floor literally. I started vomiting and my two sister in laws had to drag me to the bath room.

At that point I blacked out.

As I came To I had to go see Billy. Especially because I said to Billy I would be the first  face you see when you come out of surgery. Well I just couldn’t , his parents went in first then my father then me.

So when I go into the room to see Billy he stared at me with these blue eyes and says “do I have cancer” we were told by the doctor not to tell Billy he had cancer because he needs his strength to recover…..other wise he could just give up  and  die” what the hell !!!  Well as I spoke to him. . . .I tried lying but I just couldn’t.  I told him  yes he had brain cancer and crawled up into his bed and cried with him.

.
3 days later he was sent home with hospice. Well I wasn’t going to use hospice                     at this point because I thought Bill didn’t need it. Because he was walking and talking normally.  So I didn’t call them at that point.

After all this had happened there was no time for any research. Bill had his surgery at       St. Bernadine’s in San Bernardino. They took out 90% of the tumor and said it was deep seeded. But we got lucky to have such a great Dr. do his surgery. His name was Dr. Rowe.

So when we get home and I become a robot along with my mother , my dad, and Bills    dad we began our research on the internet, making phone calls, anything we could do to find a doctor to see that Billy stayed alive. Like mad people We research and researched! As you could imagine we never heard of a GBM until that day..

My research lead me to 3 other doctors.

So I made apps at the two that were here in Los Angeles. Dr.Clouhsey at UCLA  wanted        to re open Billys tumor site and place chemo wafers in there) and Dr.Black at USC. wanted to re open his brain and take out more brain neither of these options would work for us.

We weren’t going to settle for just anyone. . . . we wanted the best for Bill.  After all our research we learned that reopening the tumor site causes the cancer to grow more rapidly.

So NO WAY were we going to do that.

So our next doctor went to see was in North Carolina at The Brain Tumor Center at DUKE was Dr. Henry Friedman. Needing money for all this our friends started raising money for us to help save Bills life.  They did raffles,  car washes,  silent auctions,  and had a softball tournament with all the bells and whistles!!

We raised so much money,  and it was put into a FightForLifeFund for Bill Brighton.           So many people reached out it was incredible. We’re very thankful for everyone’s help.     So Bill’s dad, myself and Billy board the plane and off we went. No even knowing what      to expect. We touch down in North Carolina and meet with Dr. Friedman.

As we’re waiting in the room for the doctor we’re all nerves of course but when he walks   in I swear I knew that second he was the doctor for us. He was so passionate, caring and seemed absolutely concerned for Bill. So he was the first doctor to say let’s kill this beast before it grows back.

That’s all it took. Dr. Friedman would prescribe Bill his chemo and radiation.

Then we would fly home and go to Bill’s oncologist to administer what Dr.Friedman     would prescribe. Our 2 doctors worked beautiful together.

Bill was used as a trial person for all of these chemos and they bombarded him with Temodar, CPT-11, some other chemos I forgot, Celebrex, and radiation. Dr. Friedman   said Bill was as healthy as a horse  and Bill could take to amounts of the experimental chemos he was prescribing.  So Bill went through the whole chemo, radiation process       with almost no symptoms, although, he did have some vomiting, sickness et… cetera.          But for the most part Bill continued to work.

Yes he took some time off when needed but he was so young.  At age 30, Bill was very fit as the doctor had no problem with him continuing to work.  At one point I did have to put my foot down and told the doctor . . . . Bill couldn’t take the last treatment of CPT-11.   He had lost 40 lbs in one week.  So we didnt do it.

Because Bill was on deaths door. 

As I thought these doctors work for us. You shouldn’t let the doctors make them work        for you.  As I made damn sure that our doctors new this.  I was very young 28 and very aggressive and pushy when it came to Bill’s life.  My true feelings:  he  had  to  see  our       boys grow up.

As you can imagine after all the treatments were done and Billy had his first MRI after treatment it showed necrosis.  This met it didn’t grow back… so they decided not to put Billy on any more treatments and only MRI’s every 3-6 months. That was scary no more treatments…. I thought yikes but I had to believe in the doctor and Billy.

Billy never complained about being sick as a matter of fact he said he knows he will beat  it. Very positive never negative. That’s just Bills nature. He did have some eye issues that remained but nothing that he couldn’t adjust too. He’s a miracle too me.

So we continued life as normal and after 2.5 years Dr.Friedman said your cancer is still in remission (Bill your still cancer free). Wow couldn’t have asked for anything better in life. We were so happy. However the doctor did state Bill would be sterile after all that chemo. And that was Fine with us. However on April 5, 2004 . . . . I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. She was a miracle baby too.

We couldn’t believe we finally had a girl.

She was so precious and beautiful it  was undeniable to me that Bills Cancer was gone and he would live to see our 4 kids grow up.  As the years moved on anxiety started to go away,  MRIs stopped and we were just a normal family again.

Don’t get me wrong it was the hardest thing ~ I have ever had to go through. After years    and years went by I had a few midlife crisis myself from PTSD, however, Bill continues to support me in anyway he could. In some ways I feel I’m not good enough for him. He beat the hardest cancer in the world and I have midlife crisis on my plate.  Life is not easy!

It sucks when a loved one becomes sick with cancer. I lost my dad to lung cancer 7 years ago.  Life throws so many obstacles at you but if you take it with a grain of salt and stay positive things always work out. Except if cancer is involved.

We all have seen the black beast first hand as well as the person going through it but remember it’s 2 individuals going through a different process. Bills path was much different then my path of being his wife. You need to take all information in account.       We learned so much through our journey I wanted to share this story with others to        give them hope. There is always Hope. I pray they find a CURE now. We’ve lost too     many people to this disease and don’t need to lose more. I hope this story helps some         of you to believe there is hope and miracles do happen.

Love, Allison Brighton. ✲ ƤҼƌҪҼ ✲ ~☆҉‿ ℒℴνℯ´⁀☆҉ ~ ღϠ₡ღ !!!!!!

Ps. Our boys are now 23, 20 and 18. And our girl is 13. Bill and I live in Murrieta California and have been married almost 24 years. We live a peaceful life and are enjoying watching our children grow into adulthood. I work part time now and Bill has been with the same company for 30 years…..   ✲ ƤҼƌҪҼ ✲ ~☆҉‿ ℒℴνℯ´⁀☆҉ ~ ღϠ₡ღ !!!!!!

Dr. Roni’s Story

Image result for Roni DeLuz

 Roni DeLuz
American writer

Many people have asked me about my story, why I do what I do, how it all started           and How I do what I do. I didn’t set out to become an expert on either weight-loss or detoxification. In the spring of 1990, I was an ordinary woman living an ordinary life.          I was 35, married, a mother and happily following my calling as a registered nurse.

We lived in Southern California, where my husband at that time and I also owned and  operated 3 nursing homes providing healthcare to medically fragile and developmentally disabled children and adults. However,  unbeknownst  to our staff  and patients,  I had begun experiencing medical problems of my own.

I noticed  I was getting occasional headaches that, over time, became more frequent.  Since,  I was very busy at home and at work,  I just chalked it up to stress and popped       an aspirin.  No big deal,  I thought.  Then,  I started feeling a little pain in my joints— nothing too uncomfortable or disabling. I would ignore these indications  something      was wrong, down another aspirin or Tylenol and go on about my life.

Little by little things started getting worse. My joints started aching; my muscles      began     to hurt;  I started  having night sweats;  my heart started racing.  I did not       sleep for days even though I was exhausted.

I sought help, beginning with my internist, who did not know what was wrong, so suggested I see another doctor.  Over the course of several years,  I saw close to thirty physicians: my primary, different neurologists, immunologists, a rheumatoid arthritis expert, several heart specialists, a psychiatrist, a gastroenterologist.

None of them could figure out what was going on. Was it lupus? Multiple sclerosis? Cancer?  A bone disease?  Chron’s disease?  A boatload of viruses?  Over time different doctors suspected many ghastly,  horrible things,  but nobody  was certain about what   was happening to my body.

At first, they also told me to keep taking pain medications to relieve my symptoms.

Then they started handing me prescriptions: antibiotics, arthritis meds, steroids.

At one point I was taking thirteen different drugs, the worst being Methotrexate a         drug used for chemo- therapy. In the meantime my symptoms kept getting worse           and instead   of occurring individually they started happening all at once.

Before long, whatever was going wrong with me took over my body and life. I lost             my appetite.  I lost weight.  I was so constipated and very nauseous most of the time.        My thinking became slow and muddled—sometimes my brain was so foggy that it felt     like I was stuck in a Coca-Cola bottle and couldn’t get out.  My body was bloated; my      skin hurt and so did my eyeballs.  At one point  it felt like bugs were crawling all over       me. Needless to say, as my body and life spiraled out of control and I sunk into a deep depression. I had basically become bedridden.

On one of the rare days that I dragged myself out, I apparently drove in circles for hours while taking my daughter Whitney to Nursery school.  Her school was only 2 blocks from our home.  When I snapped out of a deep fog,  I had no idea where I was,  where I’d been or where the time had gone. That’s when I knew something was desperately wrong. I also admitted to myself that I had a serious problem.  I knew that if I didn’t get help,  I would be in serious trouble and possibly lose my daughter.

You might wonder how someone like me could find myself in a situation like this. As          a nurse and a nursing-home owner and administrator,  I certainly knew a lot of doctors.     I, of all people, should have been able to obtain proper care. So it would seem.

But like many people who develop a chronic illness, I had unknowingly strayed onto    what healthcare providers secretly call “the sick wheel”:  you go from doctor to doctor    none of whom knows exactly what’s wrong or has the complete picture of what’s going    on, though each prescribes an additional medicine.

When you’re on the sick wheel, you end up taking drug after drug, one for the physical symptoms you originally showed up with, then another to cover up the symptoms, or side effects, the first drug causes.  After a while your kidneys start hurting from trying to filter the man-made chemicals from the first two drugs out of your system. The kidneys are like the body’s trashcans,  filtering waste and toxins from the blood,  creating urine, helping to regulate blood pressure, however, they aren’t designed to process synthetic substances like pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides in your environment or chemicals in your food and water.

Once they start aching the doctors typically prescribe a third drug to mask those symptoms. Before long, you have to take a fourth to cover up the symptoms caused by    the third one.  You reach a point where so many things are going wrong with your body that no one really knows what the problem is: the drugs or the disease.  Many people in   the medical community know this cycle by a more ominous name: the “death ceremony.” It’s only a matter of time before the synthetic ingredients in the drugs wreak havoc inside your body, which becomes burdened with substances it wasn’t designed to process and, therefore, experiences as toxic.

Eventually, these chemicals exhaust the kidney and liver. My eyes turned yellow a serious indication that my liver was not working at optimal level. Many people end up on dialysis or a transplant list because medicine has damaged their organs.  And lots of folks actually die of so-called  “side effects” rather than of the disease they’re being treated for.  In fact, the fourth leading cause of death according to the Food and Drug Administration is cited as “Adverse drug reactions.” Not surprisingly, people become depressed as they lose their quality of life and hope.  Full Story ==>  http://mvholisticretreat.com/dr-ronis-story/

The Universe is a Hologram: nothing is as it seems.

Genius is defined as a person having a natural capacity of intellect.  Many movies portray these individuals,  with their individual skills, whether it is mathematics, science, … A Beautiful Mind is based on a book of the same title.

IN this brilliant movie:  From the heights of notoriety. . . . .to the depths of depravity,   John Forbes Nash, Jr. experienced it all. A mathematical genius, he made an astonishing discovery early in his career and stood on the brink of international acclaim. However, the handsome and arrogant Nash  soon found himself on a painful  and harrowing journey of self-discovery. After many years of struggle, he eventually triumphed over his tragedy, and finally – late in life – received the Nobel Prize.

GENIUSES THINK IN OPPOSITES. Physicist and philosopher David Bohm believed geniuses were able to think different thoughts because they could tolerate ambivalence between opposites or two incompatible subjects. … The suspension of thought allows an intelligence beyond thought to act and create a new form.  https://www.fastcompany.com/3032830/secrets-from-the-brains-of-13-creative-geniuses.

Quantum Mechanics

 In day to day life we seek to discover the meaning of life, we intuitively understand how the world works.  Drop a glass and it will smash to the floor.  Push a wagon and it will roll along.  Walk to a wall and you can’t walk through it.  There are very basic laws of physics going on all around us that we instinctively grasp: gravity makes things fall to the ground, pushing something makes it move, two things can’t occupy the same place at the same time.

At the turn of the century, scientists thought that all the basic rules like this should apply to everything in nature — but then they began to study the world of the ultra-small.  Atoms, electrons, light waves, none of these things followed the normal rules.  As physicists like Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein began to study particles, they discovered new physics laws that were downright quirky.  These were the laws of quantum mechanics, and they got their name from the work of Max Planck.

Here’s one of the quirky things about quantum mechanics: just because an electron or a photon can be thought of as a particle, doesn’t mean they can’t still be though of as a wave as well.  In fact, in a lot of experiments light acts much more like a wave than like a particle.

This wave nature produces some interesting effects.  For example, if an electron traveling around a nucleus behaves like a wave, then its position at any one time becomes fuzzy.  Instead of being in a concrete point, the electron is smeared out in space.  This smearing means that electrons don’t always travel quite the way one would expect.  Unlike water flowing along in one direction through a hose, electrons traveling along as electrical current can sometimes follow weird paths, especially if they’re moving near the surface of a material.  Moreover, electrons acting like a wave can sometimes burrow right through a barrier.  Understanding this odd behavior of electrons was necessary as scientists tried to control how current flowed through the first transistors.

So which is it – a particle or a wave?

Scientists interpret quantum mechanics to mean that a tiny piece of material like a photon or electron is both a particle and a wave.  It can be either, depending on how one looks at it or what kind of an experiment one is doing.  In fact, it might be more accurate to say that photons and electrons are neither a particle or a wave — they’re undefined up until the very moment someone looks at them or performs an experiment, thus forcing them to be either a particle or a wave.

This comes with other side effects: namely that a number of qualities for particles aren’t well-defined.  For example, there is a theory by Werner Heisenberg called the Uncertainty Principle.  It states that if a researcher wants to measure the speed and position of a particle, he can’t do both very accurately.  If he measures the speed carefully, then he can’t measure the position nearly as well.  This doesn’t just mean he doesn’t have good enough measurement tools — it’s more fundamental than that.  If the speed is well-established then there simply does not exist a well-established position (the electron is smeared out like a wave) and vice versa.

Albert Einstein disliked this idea.  When confronted with the notion that the laws of physics left room for such vagueness he announced: “God does not play dice with the universe.”  Nevertheless, most physicists today accept the laws of quantum mechanics      as an accurate description of the subatomic world.     And certainly it was a thorough understanding of these new laws which helped Bardeen, Brattain, and Shockley invent    the transistor.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBrsWPCp_rs

You might think “radio” is a gadget you listen to, but it also means something else. Radio means sending energy with waves. In other words, it’s a method of transmitting electrical energy from one place to another without using any kind of direct, wired connection. That’s why it’s often called wireless. The equipment that sends out a radio wave is known as a transmitter; the radio wave sent by a transmitter whizzes through the air—maybe from one side of the world to the other—and completes its journey when it reaches a second piece of equipment called a receiver.

When you extend the antenna (aerial) on a radio receiver, it snatches some of the electromagnetic energy passing by. Tune the radio into a station and an electronic circuit inside the radio selects only the program you want from all those that are broadcasting.

Artwork showing how antennas transmit and receive radio waves

 
In much the same way cells communicate in the human body: radio waves travel from a transmitter to a receiver.
.
1) Electrons rush up and down the transmitter, shooting out radio waves.
2) The radio waves travel through the air at the speed of light.
3) When the radio waves hit a receiver, they make electrons vibrate inside it, recreating the original signal. This process can happen between one powerful transmitter and many receivers—which is why thousands or millions of people can pick up the same radio signal at the same time.
 

How does this happen? The electromagnetic energy, which is a mixture of electricity      and magnetism, travels past you in waves like those on the surface of the ocean. These     are called radio waves. Like ocean waves, radio waves have a certain speed, length, and frequency. The speed is simply how fast the wave travels between two places.

The wavelength is the distance between one crest (wave peak) and the next, while the frequency is the number of waves that arrive each second. Frequency is measured with       a unit called hertz, so if seven waves arrive in a second, we call that seven hertz (7 Hz).

If you’ve ever watched ocean waves rolling in to the beach, you’ll know they travel with         a speed of maybe one meter (three feet) per second or so. The wavelength of ocean waves tends to be tens of meters or feet, and the frequency is about one wave every few seconds.

When your radio sits on a bookshelf trying to catch waves coming into your home, it’s a  bit like you standing by the beach watching the breakers rolling in. Radio waves are much faster, longer, and more frequent than ocean waves, however. Their wavelength is typically hundreds of meters—so that’s the distance between one wave crest and the next. But their frequency can be in the millions of hertz—so millions of these waves arrive each second.

If the waves are hundreds of meters long, how can millions of them arrive so often?

It’s simple. Radio waves travel unbelievably fast—at the speed of light (300,000 km or 186,000 miles per second).

Ocean waves carry energy by making the water move up and down. In much the same   way, radio waves carry energy as an invisible, up-and-down movement of electricity and magnetism.

This carries program signals from huge transmitter antennas, which are connected to     the radio station, to the smaller antenna on your radio set. A program is transmitted by adding it to a radio wave called a carrier. This process is called modulation. Sometimes       a radio program is added to the carrier in such a way that the program signal causes fluctuations in the carrier’s frequency.

This is called frequency modulation (FM). Another way of sending a radio signal is to make the peaks of the carrier wave bigger or smaller. Since the size of a wave is called its amplitude, this process is known as amplitude modulation (AM). Frequency modulation  is how FM radio is broadcast; amplitude modulation is the technique used by AM radio stations.

What’s the difference between AM and FM?

An example makes this clearer. Suppose I’m on a rowboat in the ocean pretending to be      a radio transmitter and you’re on the shore pretending to be a radio receiver.

Let’s say I want to send a distress signal to you. I could rock the boat up and down quickly in the water to send big waves to you. If there are already waves traveling past my boat, from the distant ocean to the shore, my movements are going to make those existing waves much bigger. In other words, I will be using the waves passing by as a carrier to send my signal and,  because I’ll be changing the height of the waves,  I’ll be transmitting my signal by amplitude modulation.

Alternatively, instead of moving my boat up and down, I could put my hand in the water and move it quickly back and forth. Now I’ll make the waves travel more often—increasing their frequency.  So,  in this case,  my signal will travel to you by frequency modulation.

Sending information by changing the shapes of waves is an example of an analog process. This means the information you are trying to send is represented by a direct physical change (the water moving up and down or back and forth more quickly).

The trouble with AM and FM is that the program signal becomes part of the wave that carries it.  So, if something happens to the wave en-route,  part of the signal is likely to get lost. And if it gets lost, there’s no way to get it back again. Imagine I’m sending my distress signal from the boat to the shore and a speedboat races in between.

The waves that it creates …. will quickly overwhelm the ones I’ve made and obliterate the    message I’m trying to send. That’s why analog radios can sound crackly, especially if you’re listening in a car.  Digital radio can help to solve that problem by sending radio broadcasts in a coded, numeric format so that interference doesn’t disrupt the signal in the same way. We’ll talk about that in a moment, but first let’s see take a peek inside an analog radio.

Preview  Harry Reid: ‘Why Would We Want

To’ Help One Kid With Cancer?

 
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blamed Republicans Wednesday afternoon for the National Institutes of Health turning away cancer patients, saying he wouldn’t be forced  to pick and choose between parts of the government.

In a tense exchange, CNN reporter Dana Bash asked Mr. Reid why he wouldn’t pass a House bill that would specifically fund the National Institutes of Health if it would help “one child who has cancer.”

“The House is presumably going to pass a bill that funds at least the NIH,” Ms. Bash said. “Given what you’ve said, will you at least pass that? And if not, aren’t you playing the same political games that Republicans are?”

“Listen, Sen. Durbin explained that very well, and he did it here, did it on the floor earlier, as did Sen. Schumer,” Mr. Reid replied. “What right did they have to pick and choose what part of government is going to be funded? It’s obvious what’s going on here. You talk about reckless and irresponsible. Wow. What this is all about is Obamacare. They are obsessed.

I don’t know what other word I can use. They’re obsessed with this Obamacare thing. It’s working now and it will continue to work and people will love it more than they do now by far. So they have no right to pick and choose.”

As Mr. Reid was speaking, Ms. Bash asked him the question about why he wouldn’t take action if he could help “one child who has cancer.”

“Listen, listen — why would we want to do that?” Mr. Reid said, continuing his answer.

“I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force Base that are sitting home. They have a few problems of their own. This is — to have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing maybe means you’re irresponsible and reckless…”

When it comes to cancer what we the people need to be is more insistent on given results and start realizing cut burn and poison only profits big pharma. Through research of the past 11 1/2 years what I have learned that less toxic treatments are providing far better results.

Wonderful Alternative Road to Recovery-Linda Wyllie

I took my wife to the Hufeland Klinik in February of 2010, and the outcome                 was      positive and satisfactory.

My wife Linda was operated on in December 2009, for endometrial cancer at                   one of England’s best known cancer hospitals.  Needless to say she was urged                       to undergo radiotherapy, but she declined.

We went to the Hufeland Klinik as soon as she could travel, which was in February,        and she was assessed by Dr. Demuth and Dr. Worms. Dr. Demuth advised Linda that radiotherapy would, in her case, have been the worst treatment possible, and that they  had seen terrible damage caused by it.   https://germancancerclinics.com/clinics/hufeland-klinik-cancer

Linda underwent five weeks of fairly intensive combined treatments, all gentle and non-invasive, except for the countless injections! The basis of treatment was immuno-building, enzyme therapy, detoxification, targeted nutritional support, ozone therapy, various IV infusions, including high-dose vitamin C, and de-stressing.

As is normal she was extremely stressed on arrival at the clinic having made a difficult decision, but by half way through our stay she had overcome this. Linda’s treatment was based on the”standard package” that everyone had; she was told she did not need any of the special treatments such as IPT or hyperthermia. She also took the Wilhelmsquelle Spa water every day, and it worked wonders on her bowels!

At the conclusion of treatment, tumor blood markers had returned to normal, and            Dr. Demuth advised us that in his opinion Linda could be regarded as cancer-free.

We think the Hufeland Klinik is excellent. One minor point is that there is a bit of traffic noise at night.

Linda was advised to continue with the IV vitamin C in England [which she does].

She undergoes regular physical examinations, ultrasound scans and blood marker tests [locally], and is currently cancer-free. All the treatments she underwent were, with the exception of some deep intramuscular injections, without pain or unpleasant side effects.

In contrast, we know, or know of, several people who have undergone long and protracted, and in some cases, extremely unpleasant chemotherapy and radiation with questionable outcomes, and in general the ones we know look terrible. These treatments can easily wreck ones health and pave the way for a return of cancer at a future time.

Thanks again for introducing us to a wonderful alternative road to recovery from cancer, which most people are completely unaware of, and in many cases, don’t seem to want to know about.

Sincerely,

David & Linda Wyllie  🙂

Also Another Find example would be my good friend on Facebook Darryl Anne Mooney whom …  went from a wheel chair to bicycle in three weeks and came back from her trip to The Marinus Klinik in Germany …. Healthy & Vibrant. 🙂

No automatic alt text available.

   Thereby when one has cancer one needs to do research about cancer survivors that made it happen           by doing exhaustive research themselves. For ex. people like Peggy Sue Roberts, a 10-year, stage-4         cancer survivor. She lives in Southern California and is very blessed to be alive today. Peggy states, I certainly wouldn’t be here today if I took the medical advice of my conventional oncologist.
He simply said oncology couldn’t do anything else for me because of my near death reaction to chemotherapy . She was sent me home to die in 2006.
   Instead of accepting his prognosis, my husband Jim and I had decided to try natural cancer treatments after some research. I arrived at the Mexican cancer clinic in a wheel chair with just several weeks to live. I was very weak, and felt like I was going to die. But I had the will to live! After several weeks of natural cancer treatments, I was a new person. I felt strong, and alive. My husband, Jim, and I walked out of that clinic with huge smiles on our faces.
 I knew I was going to live.

   Now, after getting natural cancer treatments at a Mexican cancer clinic in 2007,            I’ve enjoyed 10 additional years of life that’s been given  to me.  I feel great today,             and I thank the Lord for the additional time with my family. *Results may vary.

A few weeks after returning home from Mexico, I went to see my conventional oncologist. He was in mild shock after receiving the results of my “after” PET-scan test, compared with my first PET-scan.

He said, “I’ve never seen anything like it in my life, Peggy. Your blood test is perfect, and your PET-scan didn’t detect any cancer at all.”  I never told him I had been to a Mexican clinic and he never asked, which I can only imagine was because he never really cared.

My Custom Treatment Plan Consisted Of These 6 Therapies: 

  • Hyperthermia(local/whole body heat)
  • Sonodynamic Therapy
  • Insulin Potentiation Therapy(IPT)
  • Oxygen Treatments
  • Enzyme Therapy
  •  Halo (Biophotonic) Therapy

Barbara Caudill also arrived at the Immunity Therapy Center in a wheel chair unable         to walk and with very little hope to live.

Barbara witnessed firsthand how Dr. Bautista has built a center that brings life back       into people by stepping outside of the box.  Her trip to Mexico has given her a whole       new appreciation for a unique culture.*

 
Please Note: (My father excepted his fate; listen to his dumbass oncologist at OHIO State and died 14 months later without any further research to the very rare cancer type Leiomyosarcoma.)
 
So WE the people need to start voting these nimrods we have working for us that are career Washington D.C. without any given results throughout their career.  Whom are taking money from lobbyist and kick their sorry asses out of their precious office. To have true Universal Health Care, WE The People need to be insistent that we get back to pre –  1973 standards . . .  with our Health Care System being non — profit including Insurers.
 .
**Then and only then can we be expected to be taxed to help cover our doctors expenses and to have affordable health care coverage with reduced premium cost.**

Candida albicans, a common yeast, and its links to cancer?

By Chris Woollams 

Source:   https://www.canceractive.com/
Expert Gerald Green believed that the common yeast, Candida albicans, was linked to cancer and a host of gut illnesses from IBS to Crohn´s and he had an anti-candida diet to beat it.   http://naturalsociety.com/candida-may-actually-cause-cancer/

Do you have a yeast infection?

Mouth ulcers, sweet tooth, bloating after meals, flatulence, cystitis or thrush? Or stomach problems, pain in the stomach, frequent bowel movements or constipation? How about unexplained fatigue, lack of energy, frequent minor infections, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome?

Most people simply would not think that one of the first steps in a cancer prevention programme might be to cut out excess yeasts or candida infections. They drain you, and poison you. Certainly few oncologist doctors would tell a newly diagnosed cancer patient to go on an anti-yeast, anti-candida diet. Moreover, they will probably give you antibiotics, steroids and other drugs that will only make your yeast infections worse!

However, there is a growing body of evidence that yeast infections, and particularly candida, are involved in a number of cancers. They are definitely an acknowledged problem in certain cancer treatments, for example in Multiple Myeloma and Leukaemia,   a by-product of the heavy drug routine and the lack of a strong immune system.

But could yeasts and candida actually lie behind many cancers, far more than Doctors would expect? Could they even be the cause of a cancer? Or a factor that could drive the disease as it progresses?

Try this for size:  “Cancer patients undergoing radio or chemotherapy did not finally succumb to the cancer itself, but to an infestation of candida albicans”. That was taken from Contemporary Oncology Magazine 1993 in the USA.

This is one article about the possibility that common yeasts, which can show as symptoms like thrush, cystitis, yellow toe nails and/or bloating after meals, can develop in the body to become serious candida albicans infections. These thrive in a low oxygen environment (as do cancers) and produce toxic by-products that can both feed and stimulate cancers. This article, about the work of Gerald Green, will even give you a simple anti-candida diet. (Readers might also like to read our book: ´The Secret Source of your good health´, which covers beneficial bacteria, pathogens, candida and all chronic illnesses).

Candida, yeast infection and cancer!!!!

Preview  Sugar – cause of Candida – Candida cause of Cancer

I have a wonderful job. I also meet so many interesting people, so many experts all on   the  same mission – helping people beat cancer.  One minute it´s Charlotte Gerson, then Dr. Contreras. I may get a complex soon though; none of Britain´s top orthodox doctors ever seem to ring me up to tell me of their latest work,  which is very sad because icon now goes out to over 450,000 readers every issue in over 600 hospitals, oncology units, complementary centres and health centres in UK libraries.

Open quotesIt is estimated that 70 per cent of the British population
have a yeast infectionClose quotes


One gentleman, with whom I had been corresponding, was Gerald Green, a medical herbalist and immunologist in Bexhill, Sussex. His grandfather (Professor Fritz Hber 1868-1934) won a Nobel Prize and was one of Germanys finest scientists. Energy and investigative endurance clearly run in the family. Gerald devoted a large part of his life to studying candida, but sadly died a few years ago.

It is estimated that 70 per cent of the British population have a yeast infection. The primary cause of this is our love of antibiotics. Swollen glands? Take antibiotics. Tonsillitis? Take antibiotics. Are you allergic to antibiotics? If the answer is no, that´s fine. Antibiotics have no side effects. Who says?

So would you be surprised if I told you that The Journal of the American Medical Association (Feb 18th 2004; 291; 827-35) has reported a study on 10,000 women in which women who took over 500 days of antibiotics in a 17 year period (dubbed 25 plus doses) had twice the risk of breast cancer as those that took none at all. Even women taking just ONE DOSE had a statistical risk increase to 1.5 times. This followed worrisome findings   in Finland in 2000.

Friendly Bacteria and cancer

Apart from a minor problem that they may well be toxic to brain cells (Drs Goldman & Klatz – US), antibiotics kill many strains of bacteria in the body, including the ones you need; the friendly ones in the gut. You see, friendly (commensal) bacteria are fragile.

Friendly bacteria?  You´ve probably heard of acidophilus, or bifidobacteria?  But they       are not even in the top 50.  Your gut actually contains about 800 different strains, 400      of which have been identified. Roughly 12 come up time and time again in research and, for example,

1. They are known drivers of 85 per cent of your immune system – they stimulate it to produce antibodies.

2. They actually make important (and anti-cancer) vitamins like biotin, folic acid, B-12  and vitamin K. And melatonin, glutathione and seratonin.

3. They help you eliminate carcinogenic hormones and chemicals like oestrogen, nitrosamines, cadmium and mercury

4. They even produce an anti-cancer chemical from your foods

5. Their favourite foods are whole foods and whole grains – and candida albicans and microbes

Open quotesAntibiotics kill most of the bacteria in the body,
including the ones you needClose quotes

At night they can digest roughly 2.2 kilograms of yeasts and microbes for you.                They are your first line of defence.

Go to: How to heal Your Gut

They have inhabited our bodies for thousands of years. They help us, and in return           we give them a nice cosy place to live.

Except we don´t anymore.  We have broken our lifetime deal with them.  We no longer  feed them their favourite fibre-rich, whole foods. And, we eat too much salt, pickled foods, drink excess alcohol and chlorinated water,  which each can change our stomach´s acidity and so harms them and reduces their growth, multiplication and action. Worse we eat food with antibiotics in it and take drugs, which can kill them.

And to make matters worse we feed their enemies – yeasts and candida love sugar           and dairy!

Stress and poor diet can reduce levels of good bacteria in just a few days,                              so you are wise anyway to take an effective daily probiotic.

It is no wonder there is a growing volume of research linking your gut to the encouragement, or prevention, of cancer.

An anti-candida diet

It is easy to see how yeasts have taken a hold in the Western world. The US and UK diets are simply weak in the foods that keep yeasts under control.  My Thai wife used to live in    a country with a trillion such microbes lounging on every street corner, however in a Thai diet rich in coconut (caprylic acid),  garlic,  chillies and bee propolis,  foods are natural controllers of yeasts. Once upon a time in England, we ate cloves and raw honey, but now our diets merely help to propagate yeasts.

High sugar drinks, snacks, fast food, alcohol, refined wheat, indeed any high glycaemic food, feed the yeasts. And we live in a high glycaemic world in the West.Gerald Green believesd there is a ´Super-Herb´ that could kill off yeasts like candida, and pathogens  like E. coli, viruses, and parasites. It is called Artemisinin.

Over the last 80 years several people have had theories about parasites and their cause of cancer. By and large they have been ridiculed. Hulda Clark, Royal Rife and others. I helped Geoffrey Boycott beat his mouth cancer by killing off a parasite and his yeasts. They both weaken you, and they both produce toxins.

So why ignore yeasts?? Maybe because antibiotics are the big blame factor that no one dare own up to??

Yeasts Cause Other Illnesses

Diabetes is a well studied disease. Arthritis is probably less clear. But recently research in the USA showed that by taking cinnamon could – in some people – significantly reduce the symptoms of both diseases.  Why?  Well yeast infections eventually move across the gut lining (Leaky Gut) and into the blood system.  Every cell has large numbers of receptor sites on the cell wall which it needs to function properly. In non-diabetics, insulin alights on some receptors, for example, to take glucose out of the blood and into the cells.

But what if the receptors are blocked with yeasts? In the past 5 years two Nobel prizes were won by people showing how these receptor sites could become blocked and cells could not communicate very well. One reason for this blocking was that carbohydrate could make them sticky and what stuck to them? Yeasts.

Now, there´s many a nutritionist that knows what these scientists don´t know. Namely that cinnamon will help kill yeasts in the blood stream. So now you can see why some people may well benefit. The receptor sites for insulin become unblocked. And although taking cinnamon is officially credited with glucose control in the blood stream, you can  see that the research results that cinnamon benefited 25 per cent of diabetics may have had nothing to do with sugar directly, but by unblocking receptor sites the insulin could suddenly work again and thus, indirectly, blood sugar was lowered.

Yeasts – a cause of Cancer?

I recently went to a cancer clinic in the USA, and to the Dove Clinic in the UK.                     At both I talked to the nurses.

Open quotesEvery Cancer patient they see, man or woman, has bad candidaClose quotes

They were unanimous. Every cancer patient they see, man or woman, has bad candida. Whether it is breast cancer or prostate cancer. (It is most definitely true for    my daughter with her brain tumour too).

The problem is that these yeasts get everywhere. Whilst they might start off in your gut, they soon pass into the blood stream and then, like Alien, they are loose in the mother ship. And they make an alcohol as a by-product of their very existence, and this alcohol feeds cancer cells. Moreover, yeasts are anaerobes – they don´t use oxygen to metabolise and survive. If they move round your body and colonise an area of your breast or prostate they set up anaerobic conditions. And cancer thrives in situations where oxygen levels are lowered.

Cancer Treatments Make Matters Worse!

To repeat: “cancer treatments make matters worse!” Steroids, antibiotics and chemotherapy, for example, kill the good bacteria and thus help the growth of the yeasts. Once they dominate, they are like mushrooms, having roots which punch holes in the gut wall. If you eat gluten it increases levels of zonulin, which in turn makes the holes formed by the roots, even bigger. This allows food molecules into the blood stream and even yeasts. Result? Fatigue, lethargy and even reduced oxygen, with yeasts sticking to cell membranes and blocking important cell receptor sites creating deficiency inside cells.  This is leaky gut.

But don´t take my word for it,  as I started the article above,  try this comment from          the prestigious US magazine Contemporary Oncology as long ago as April 1993: Cancer patients undergoing radio or chemotherapy did not finally succumb to the cancer itself, but to an infestation of candida albicans.

The anti-candida diet

So back to the late expert Mr Green. (And he is an expert. I have seen the letters he receives from hospitals and microbiology units saying he knows more than they do).        He believes even terminal cancer patients can be saved if the root cause is candida.

He believes sufferers must immediately ELIMINATE THE FOLLOWING FROM THEIR DIET:

All cows´ milk products:
cheese, yoghurt, whey. And all cows milk derivatives which are everywhere in processed food.

Carrots

Yeast products:
alcohol, bread, Marmite, Oxo, Bovril, vinegars, mushrooms, processed and smoked fish and meats.

All sugar products:
honey, fructose, lactose, glucose, dextrose and sweeteners like Nutrisweet and Canderel.

Nearly all fruit:
overripe fruits are full of sugar and yeasts. Plus vegetables like courgettes, pumpkin, squash, marrow.

High sugar root vegetables:
carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, beetroots, (maximum 1 potato per day).

Personally, I would add all high glycaemic foods to this list, e.g. refined wheat, rice, pasta, fizzy soft drinks, fruit juices and squash, biscuits, pastries, pies and corn. Gerald mentions most of these too in his diet and he suggests you avoid all pulses, processed meats, high salt foods and hydrogenated vegetable oils too.

Below you will find his list of Good Food Choices.

His sweetener of choice is Stevia, a herb 100 times sweeter than sugar but a natural anti-fungal agent.

He recommends astragalus and echinacea pIus 1 gm vitamin C daily to boost the immune system. (Gerald does a lot of work with cancer patients, MS, Crohn´s and Lupus sufferers too).

Good Food Choices

EAT PLENTY OF THE FOLLOWING FOODS:

Broccoli

Alfalfa sprouts
Bean sprouts
Bell peppers (sweet peppers)
Bok choy
Broccoli
Brussel sprouts
Cabbage
Cauliflower
Celery
Cucumber
Endive
Fennel
Garlic
Green beans
Hot chilli peppers
Kale
Lettuce
Onions
Parsley
Radishes
Spring onions
Spinach
Swiss chard
Turnips
Yellow beans

Cod liver oil

FATS (in moderation):
Granose sunflower margarine
Tomor kosher margarine (both these margarines should be available at your local health food shop)
Avocado oil
Fish oil
Flaxseed oil
Grapeseed oil
Hemp oil
Mayonnaise
Monounsaturated fats
Olive oil
Primrose oil

FLUIDS
Try to drink eight glasses of water each day.

Herbal teas are acceptable

PROTEINS
Free range eggs
Fresh fish and seafood
Pork, lamb, veal
Poultry: chicken, turkey (particularly skinless white meat)
Game
Tofu
Quorn
5oy milk/cheeses (in moderation)
Rice milk
Sheeps milk/cheeses (dilute sheeps milk 50/50 with water and it will taste the same as cows milk)
Goats milk/cheeses

Culinary herbs and spices

Not that far from the excellent CANCERactive diet. Go To: Rainbow Diet

Gerald Green

Personally, I would add that garlic, caprylic acid, oregano oil and Pau D´Arco are all excellent yeast killers. Cinnamon can kill yeasts in the blood.

Gerald Green´s favourite natural destroyer was Artemisinin, or Sweet wormwood, and again I agree and want it in my pathogen and parasite course. It kills yeasts, pathogens, parasites, E.coli, and even some cancer cells. Wormwood is a natural herb and is now fast replacing poorer performing anti-malarial Drugs in the world. It is very efficient.

Go To: The Super-Herb that kills yeasts, pathogens, viruses, parasites and some cancer cells 

Finally, I believe people don´t understand probiotics – you don´t need 45 strains and    250 billion. You need probiotics that deliver – and 8 billion of them.   You need  one that contains L. Acidophilus, L. rhamnosus (to heal your gut wall) and Bifidobacteria. It should also contain a delivery system to get the bugs through the dangerous stomach, and specific foods to feed the bacteria immediately the bacteria arrive at their destination. I use a probiotic called Modere protozymes. To read more about toxin-free products and advanced supplements like protozymes go HERE to buy.

Chlorella is a supplement that seems to enhance the action of probiotics and the natural flora in the gut. And I believe fish oils can help too, as can vitamin D.

Astragalus and Echinacea tinctures, plus Wormwood, parasite killer and protozymes are all available in the Natural Selection Products of Choice shop – simply click SHOP at the top of this page or click here.

Reviews of herbs etc. can be found in our Nutritionals section, under Complementary    and Alternative Treatments.

Readers are also advised to look at our article on Beneficial Bacteria.

Gerald published a book called “Breaking Through the Untouchable Diseases”.        This along with multi-strain probiotics and other products mentioned here can be   found in the Natural Selection shop.

Bottomline: anywhere between 79 to 97 % of all cancer patients also have Candidiasis  

One book has everything you want to know about The Natural Alternative 🙂

You Can Heal Your Life By Healing Your LIFE

 Image result for honoring the life of louise hay full movie

Louise Lynn Hay (October 8, 1926 – August 30, 2017) was an American motivational author and the founder of Hay House. She authored several New Thought self-help books, including  the 1984 book,  You Can Heal Your Life built a self-help publishing empire has attracted millions of devotees with its messages about the power of thought and attitude, died on Wednesday at her home in San Diego. She was 90.

20 Quotes To Remember Louise Hay By:  http://www.collective-evolution.com/2017/08/30/20-beautiful-louise-hay-quotes-to-remember-her-legacy/

Her death was announced on the website of her company, Hay House.

Born Helen Vera Lunney in Los Angeles to parents Henry John Lunney (1901–1998)      and Veronica Chwala (1894–1985), Hay recounted her life story in an interview with   Mark Oppenheimer of The New York Times in May 2008.[1]

In it, Hay stated that she was born in Los Angeles to a poor mother who remarried Louise’s violent stepfather Ernest Carl Wanzenreid 1903-1992 , who physically abused   her and her mother. According to Hay, when she was about 5, was raped by a neighbor.

At 15, she dropped out of University high school in Los Angeles without a diploma, became pregnant and, on her 16th birthday, gave up her newborn baby girl for adoption. She then moved to Chicago, where she worked in low-paying jobs. In 1950, she moved on again, to New York. At this point she also changed her first name, and began a career as a fashion model.

She achieved success, working for Bill Blass, Oleg Cassini and Pauline Trigère. In 1954,  she married the English businessman Andrew Hay 1928-2001; after 14 years of marriage, she felt devastated when he left her for another woman Sharman Douglas 1928-1996.[1]

Hay said that about this time she found the First Church of Religious Science on 48th Street, which taught her the transformative power of thought. Hay revealed that here she studied the New Thought works of authors like Florence Scovel Shinn, who claimed that positive thinking could change people’s material circumstances, and the Religious Science founder Ernest Holmes, who taught that positive thinking could heal the body.[2]

By Hay’s account, in the early 1970s she became a Religious Science practitioner.               In this role she led people in spoken affirmations, which she believes would cure their illnesses, and became popular as a workshop leader.  She  also  recalled  how she had  studied Transcendental Meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi at the Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa.[1]

Hay described how in 1977 or 1978 she was diagnosed with “incurable” cervical cancer, and how she came to the conclusion by holding on to her resentment for her childhood abuse and rape  she had contributed to its onset.  She also reported how she had refused conventional medical treatment, and began a regime of forgiveness, coupled with therapy, nutrition, reflexology and occasional colonic enemas.

She claimed in the interview that she rid herself of the cancer by this method, but, while swearing to its truth, admitted that she had outlived every doctor who could confirm this story.[1]

In 1976, Hay wrote her first book, Heal Your Body, which began as a small pamphlet containing a list of different bodily ailments and their “probable” metaphysical causes.[1] This pamphlet was later enlarged and extended into her book You Can Heal Your Life, published in 1984. In books like “You Can Heal Your Life,” “The Power Is Within You”  and “Meditations to Heal Your Life,”

Ms. Hay espoused an upbeat message with a metaphysical underpinning. She wrote  that there is a link between thoughts and disease and life’s other misfortunes, and she urged people to find a positive way to spin even the worst of them.

Ms. Hay became an early example of the sort of self-improvement gospel that has sprung up over the last several decades.  (In A 2008 New York Times Magazine article about her carried the headline “The Queen of the New Age.”) And she was one of its most successful adherents.

Few women have sold more books, and Hay House, which she started in her living room  in the mid-1980s, has grown into a multimillion-dollar company handling a long roster     of authors and an extensive line of products, including books, CDs and online courses.   The company also stages lectures and workshops featuring its authors.

This entertaining and inspirational movie based on the best-selling book of the same  name is hosted by author and teacher Louise L. Hay.

This film gives penetrating insights into Louise’s fascinating personal story; and shows  how her views on self-esteem,  abundance,  and the metaphysical causes behind physical ailments were developed.  It reveals how she applied these concepts to her own emotional, spiritual, and professional life.

Cancer Hates Tea

Cancer isn’t like catching something (cold or flu) or be prevented by washing your hands/ Cancer is something that is triggered in your body. It’s something that goes awry in a cells genetic code, either by stress, poor diet & chemicals in our food, smoking, sun exposure, toxins in our environment and even aging plain life. Cancer works like a scavenger waiting for the opportunity to strike
 .
 Of the trillions of cells in your body some are nasty, but your immune system is programmed as a top-notch cancer fighter. However, sometimes these cancerous monsters overwhelm your immune system. The pace at which cancerous cells divide and multiply after a slow start can be amazing. Because they’re multiplying so rapidly, they’re consuming more of your cells energy reserve.
 .
  If a microscopic cancer gets off to a good start it keeps growing until it forms a tumor. This requires oxygen for energy which cancer coerces your body into supplying by getting it to build blood vessels to deliver oxygen to the tumor building site. Once those blood vessels are created, the cancer can invade surrounding tissues.
 .
  When a tumor sits in isolation it can simply be removed, however, cancer is a conniving disease out to cause pure chaos “Metastasis”
 .
Understanding How CANCER begins is imperative:
The average body is made up of tens of trillions of cells and those cells require management. When you’re healthy your DNA is telling these cells to behave. Everyone sustains physiological strain to their cells. Either as a result of the chemical processes that keeps you alive, because your fighting inflammation or noxious invaders. This brings on a damaging cellular condition know as oxidative stress, however, your immune system is designed to counteract these free radicals.
 .
  At the deepest cellular level, antioxidants neutralize these free radicals dead in their tracks by stabilizing them chemically. left unchecked in their highly reactive state, free radicals can cause you DNA to spontaneously change its genetic message. Is estimated that cells can fix up to a million changes in its DNA daily. However when it doesn’t get repaired eventually the mutated cells will spawn a whole new hoard of cells growing ravenously out of control, becoming malignant. And that spells cancer.
 .

When Maria Uspenski was diagnosed with cancer and witness it go into remission … she turned her focus to 100% onto preventing the recurrence. It took Maria years to ignore the whispers of doubt in her head  where she wasn’t sensing signs of recurrence.  Maria being an analytical person by background wanted to learn every biomechanical mechanism that made cancer spread.

   What she learned was that if cancer doesn’t like the playing field in your body it will retreat. Simply by eliminating refined and processed foods that’s a huge step in the right direction. In this research also she learned cancer hates tea with compelling evidence advocating a five cup per day tea habit.
 ..
   Keep in mind the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics states drinking 300 mg. per day won’t have any detrimental effects. Thereby your total caffeine intake is important to keep tabs on. Each 8 ounce serving of white or green tea gives you 10 mg and 35mg of caffeine. Black tea provides 0 to 50 mg per 8 ounces serving Pu-erh tea  can get up to 60 mg. Which is half as much caffeine as a  same size cup of coffee. One energy drink can have upwards of 200 mg of caffeine?
.

Green Tea: Does it Really Prevent Cancer  by Dr.James Meschino

Could Five teas a day keep cancer away? We’ve long been aware that drinking tea is good for us, but a new book with a telling title is doling out this fascinating prevention-centric advice that has us pondering. 

Cancer Hates Tea — written and researched by tea professional (and MIT engineer) Maria Uspenski — explores the potentially profound benefits of a daily tea habit, specifically, five cups a day. Green tea lovers, this ones for you… 

Tea is the most studied anti-cancer plant. Over the past ten years, more than 5,000 medical studies have been published on its health benefits,  with over 1,000 of those focusing specifically on tea and cancer. Now keep in mind, this is real tea we’re talking about here, not caffeine-free herbals like peppermint or chamomile. The good news is   that the research indicates you only need to consume a little more than a quart of fresh steeped whole-leaf tea each day to bask in the therapeutic benefits of its powerful antioxidants. That’s a five cup a day habit.

5 reasons to try the 5 cups a day habit

BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY Five cups daily can have a measurable effect on boosting your immunity against cancer and other diseases. The research studies that turned me on to tea, and in particular green tea, showed that green tea consumption of three to five cups per day may be preventive against the recurrence of cancer. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) stance on green tea is that research indicates it to be possibly effective against many afflictions, including several types of cancer. Some studies have shown its benefits being measurable in as little as one week of drinking a little over one quart of fresh brewed tea daily.

antioxidants all day When you consume five cups by drinking every few hours throughout the day, it keeps tea’s benefits active in your body. You want to maintain the level of antioxidants in your bloodstream. Timing is everything. The polyphenol antioxidants in tea are best absorbed when drinking it on an empty stomach. If you start drinking tea early in the day and sip it often, between meals, you’re on the right track to netting the maximum benefits for your immune system. You might be thinking, when am I supposed to find the time to make and drink five cups of tea? It may seem like you’re taking on a second career at first, but you really can make it simple. Here are some tips:

Begin your day with tea, as this is the best time of day for your body to absorb its benefits. Even if you need to grab a coffee an hour later, you’re rousing your cells with      tea polyphenols, which you can’t get anywhere else.

Cold brew and sip throughout the day. Every morning, fill a 32-ounce water bottle with a tea you cold brewed overnight. Choose a low-caff tea, and this becomes your new “enriched” water.

Keep calm and get an afternoon tea habit going. Tea is a perfect way to reboot before getting into your evening. If you’re not out indulging in a glass of wine for happy hour with friends, steep yourself a favorite tea to unwind at the end of your work day.

Relax + Focus Five cups a day will enhance your overall feeling of well-being in ways you never dreamed of. Tea contains a unique amino acid called theanine that’s like a mash-up of a chill pill with brain juice. In combination with caffeine, it’s especially clever in how it acts on some critical pathways in the brain. This molecule neutralizes the jittery and edgy effects of caffeine, without affecting the mind-focusing aspects. Have you ever noticed that your body reacts differently to the caffeine in tea versus coffee?

By promoting alpha brain-wave production, theanine allows you to relax and focus at the same time. It’s complicated, but once you dig down, it all begins to make sense as to why tea is often used to help support meditation. Drinking tea produces some of the same chemical and neurological effects as going into a deep meditative state.

One last tip: You’ll be in the express lane to zen if you reduce your coffee and alcohol consumption while increasing your tea intake.

It’s cost effective Five cups a day won’t break the bank. In fact, if you brew your own tea, and ditch a latte or a sugared beverage in the process, you’ll come out way ahead. You can get an amazingly diverse and healthful mix of five cups of tea a day for less than $30 dollars a month. Even the most lavish habit, if you steep your own tea, amounts to less than the cost of a couple of shots of Nespresso or a coffee from your local Starbucks daily.

Five is just right Five cups a day is a good place to stop drinking, too! Keep in mind that too much of anything turns out to be not such a good thing; anything in excess won’t be good for you. Your total caffeine intake is also an important number to keep tabs on. A cup of tea contains between 10 mg and 50 mg of caffeine, depending on the tea type and how long you steep it. By contrast, a cup of coffee has between two to twelve times as much. As positive as your five cups of tea are for maintaining wellness, doubling or tripling that amount isn’t a good idea, and can start to become toxic to your cells. The NIH states that it’s likely safe for adults to drink five cups of tea a day.

The Tea Spot is a leading producer of handcrafted loose leaf teas and  Steepware® –         the housewares tools that make loose tea easy. Its vision to modernize the loose leaf tea experience has held steadfast since the for-profit philanthropic company was founded by Maria Uspenski in 2004, a cancer survivor drawn to the health benefits of leaf tea during her recovery. Her message is simple and powerful: tea in its freshest form renders premium flavor, unmatched health benefits, and is eco-friendly.      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fgQ6m6xL44

Root Cause 0f Disease ~ Lowered Self Esteem

I watched my father  for  fourteen  years battle cancer  and the 4th time it finally took his life. His cancer began when he was 70 and ended at 84 years old. Soon after he retired was when he as diagnosed,  until this day  I believe it was this sense of lost lowered self – worth that caused his cancer.  He was a machinist by trade: that was what he loved about his life and that is how he identified himself!!!!

Healing the Roots of Low Self-Esteem

 

Past experiences and environments have created the self image we hold today. Learn how to heal the root cause of your low self-esteem.

Past experiences have created the self-image and self-esteem we hold today. Learn how to heal the root cause of your low self-esteem.

  There is always a root to a problem,  and there is a root to low self-esteem,  but without identifying why or how it got there,  we don’t have the tools  to eradicate it for good. The struggle with developing unshakable confidence and self-esteem is like a battle with annoying ivy covering a beautiful home. Perhaps you have been used to the vines, even embracing them on occasion, but at the end of the day they are more problematic than positive, and they destroy the foundation.

I used this analogy just today with a beautiful young woman who felt anything but attractive. “I am trying, and I practice the tools, it just seems like I am not getting far;     I am always struggling with the way I look,” she said.

“So, its like you are cutting a small leaf or branch off, but still feel like your covered in vines. Some of the tricks and tools we have used work but they don’t seem to be fixing    the root cause—the reason these toxic thoughts developed in the first place.”

Even if we have done deep work in the past, when we thought we had eradicated those low self-esteem beliefs for good, the root can keep growing and the right circumstances can make it feel like the weeds are taking over your mind.

How to Get to the Root of Low Self-Esteem

Think of the ways your self-image, confidence, and self-esteem developed. These could have been thoughts you have had since childhood, early experiences, or circumstances you encountered through life. The beliefs stemmed from somewhere.

Past experiences have created the self-image and self-esteem we hold today. Learn how to heal the root cause of your low self-esteem.

  1. Invalidating environments: an overly critical parent, lover, or friend. On the   flip side,  it could have been a person in your life  behaved in a way that made you    feel incapable of making your own decisions or trusting yourself. An overprotective parent or someone who made you feel fragile and that alone you couldn’t handle the demands of the world.
  2. Loss or trauma: feeling out of control, death of a loved one, divorce, feeling abandoned, abuse
  3. Rejection: this could have been from a loved one or a group of kids at school,         not getting into a program or holding on to feelings of perceived inadequacy.
  4. Unspoken pressure: from peers, friends, even society, giving you standards       you tried to live up to but always felt like you were coming up short.
  5. Mistaken beliefs: these come from our own experiences, attempting to make     sense of the life circumstances and feelings we encounter.  However,  they hold          us back and keep the roots from healing.

Common Mistaken Beliefs that Lead to Low Self-Esteem

Do any of these feel true for you? If so, get curious and look for the roots or experiences that made these come about.

  • I am powerless; I am a victim of circumstances greater than me.
  • Life is not easy; it’s always a struggle
  • If I try, I will fail.
  • I don’t matter.
  • I should always look good and put together for others to like me.
  • I need to be a certain size or weight to be worthy.
  • I need to have X, Y or Z to feel successful.
  • I can’t cope with the demands of the outside world.
  • I am not good enough and I never have been.
  • I will never be worthy of love or respect.

As hard as this may be to admit, there is power in recognizing where your mistaken beliefs come from. When you can identify, to the best of your ability, the ways the root may have formed, and the toxic thoughts of low self-esteem that keep it growing in your mind, you have a much better grasp on how false they really are.

For my client, we examined that many of her mistaken beliefs came from her peers, the media, what she was told was “pretty” by television and the images she saw. She has supportive parents, but had highly critical grandparents who made confusing comments to her about weight, appearance, and the need to be attractive. She also had friends who placed a lot of emphasis on outer appearance.

When you also become aware of how these thoughts became stuck in your mind, you are better able to attack them when they come up. The more and more you practice, it’s like treating the ivy with chemicals.  Each time you spray,  it may not go away,  but it is slowly killing the root. Overtime, the real you, the empowered you, becomes more visible. When you catch a new bud or leaf starting to grow, you can stop it in its tracks. Knowing and understanding the root cause of your pain or mistaken beliefs is the best way to rid yourself of toxic thoughts and low self-esteem for good.

The Importance of Self Esteem

Self esteem is crucial and is a cornerstone of a positive attitude towards living.

It is very important because it affects how you think, act and even how you relate to other people. It allows you to live life to your potential. Low self esteem means poor confidence and that also causes negative thoughts which means that you are likely to give up easily rather than face challenges. In addition, it has a direct bearing on your happiness and wellbeing. Read more about why self esteem  is so important to you.

“What is the most important thing for a person starting out on the road to success?”

“I would tell them the most important thing is to work on your self esteem, that’s the best advice I can give.”

What is Low Self Esteem?

Low self esteem comes from a poor self image. Your self image is based on how you see yourself. Do you think you are a good, reliable, hardworking, honest or friendly person? Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror or do you believe others look better and dress better than you?

Low self esteem also depends on other factors like your job. For example, do you value the job you do? Does the job you have help you be happy with who you are?  Do the others in your office respect you?

Low self esteem feeds your negative thinking and causes you to believe the critcism others make of you. Do you take what others say and not speak up? This can cause you to lose confidence so it is vital to end negative thoughts if you want to build your self esteem.

Want to discover how you can build your esteem, confidence and inner power in order to achieve success? Then you have to see my free CD “A More Confident You” 

What is High Self Esteem?

High self esteem is the opposite of the above! If you have a high level of self esteem you will be confident, happy, highly motivated and have the right attitude to succeed.

We all know that self-esteem can be an important part of success. Too little self-esteem can leave people feeling defeated or depressed.   It can lead people to make bad choices, fall into destructive relationships, or fail to live up to their full potential. But what about too much self-esteem?  Narcissism can certainly be off-putting and can even damage personal relationships.

Self-esteem levels at the extreme high and low ends of the spectrum can be damaging, so the ideal is to strike a balance somewhere in the middle.
.

A Breakdown of Self-Esteem

In psychology, the term self-esteem is used to describe a person’s overall sense of self-worth or personal value.

  • Self-esteem is often seen as a personality trait, which means that it tends to be stable and enduring.
  • Self-esteem can involve a variety of beliefs about the self, such as the appraisal of one’s own appearance, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors.

Components of Self-Esteem

According to one definition (Branden, 1969), there are three key components of self-esteem:

  1. Self-esteem is an essential human need that is vital for survival and normal, healthy development.
  2. Self-esteem arises automatically from within, based on a person’s beliefs and consciousness.
  3. Self-esteem occurs in conjunction with a person’s thoughts, behaviors, feelings, and actions.

Self-Esteem Theories

The need for self-esteem plays an important role in psychologist Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, which depicts self-esteem as one of the basic human motivations. Maslow suggested that people need both esteem from other people as well as inner self-respect. Both of these needs must be fulfilled in order for an individual to grow as a person and achieve self-actualization.

Factors That Can Influence Self-Esteem

As you might imagine, there are different factors that can influence self-esteem. Genetic factors that help shape overall personality can play a role, but it is often our experiences that form the basis for overall self-esteem. Those who consistently receive overly critical   or negative assessments from caregivers, family members, and friends, for example, will likely experience problems with low self-esteem.

Self-Esteem Synonyms:

  • Self-worth
  • Self-respect
  • Self-value

The Importance of Self Esteem and Self Worth

by Karl Perera

I think the importance of self esteem cannot be underestimated. It affects your behaviour and thoughts. It changes how you feel about and value yourself. It affects your confidence, and that can affect your success and thinking in a big way.

Can you imagine anything else so important?

Why Should Self Esteem Matter to You?

  • Self esteem can be the difference between success and failure

  • Esteem affects your confidence
  • It affects your self image
  • If you do not value yourself how will you be able to value others?

Let’s take a moment or two to look a bit more closely at what  I’ve said above –                 and then I hope that you will appreciate just how important self esteem is to you.

Your potential to achieve what you most desire is directly related to your self esteem. On the other hand, failure is much more likely when you suffer from low self esteem because you will believe others when they tell you why you cannot succeed. LOw self esteem will affect your motivation and make you more likely to give up on anything that seems difficult. So, work on building your self esteem and success will be that much easier.

I’m sure you realise the importance of positive thinking. Increase your esteem and you  will become more positive. This will benefit you in every area of your life.

Do you Have a Problem with Self Confidence?

Self esteem affects your confidence, how important is that? If you want to rise to any challenge you must believe in yourself. Without confidence in what you can do, and in   who you are, what chance do you have of happiness or success? And if you can’t believe     in yourself, how will you be able to trust and believe in others?

Self image is another important part of how you feel about yourself. Low self esteem means that you will have a poor image of yourself and this will result in a loss of confidence.  Your social skills will also suffer and you will find it harder to socialize   because others will respond negatively to your lack of confidence. With some effort  though you can improve your self image so that it helps you.
